Introduction

For fans of the Winter Olympics, alpine skiing is one of the most action-packed sports in the game. There are numerous fast-paced events from the Super G to the Slalom and everything in between, each of which takes its own set of skills, training and execution. Some are low to the ground and built strictly for speed while others take the daring of high-flying twisting, turning and flipping. So whether you’re an alpine skier yourself, enjoy the sport as a whole or see distinct comparisons between your dog and those on the slopes, giving your dog an alpine skiing inspired name is a great way to tie together two of your lively passions.

Alpine Skiing Inspired Dog Name Considerations

While it may not seem like dogs and skiers have much in common, that doesn’t mean you can’t find clever ways to link the two through a thoughtful name. For the sake of ease, before you push off down the hill, we suggest putting together a short list of your dog’s most prominent traits from their looks to their personality and quirks, as these will be the most appropriate elements to work with. 

For instance, if your dog is much more likely to relax and enjoy life than do any type of work, the name Apres would be ideal, as it indicates they’re more into the post-work socializing than the dirty work itself. If they tend to do a lot of things backwards, then Fakie, the term for riding backwards on skis/snowboards, would be perfect. If their coloring makes them look like they are adorning eyewear, then Goggles would be a great choice. For those who love jumping, the names Kicker and Ollie would be solid picks as well.

Like off-piste skiing, there are plenty of directions you can take to reach the bottom of the hill. Try narrowing your list down to the names that are most appropriate, then see which matches the most aspects of their personality.
